The CM said that Uttarakhand is an important state in terms of tourism and spirituality and the state is moving forward in every sector under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that every possible effort is being made to provide every possible facility to the pilgrims in the Char Dham Yatra.
